One of several related "Ice" stories from Anne Stuart about various "Committee members." This one involves operative Taka and a woman named Summer Hawthorne, who holds the key to finding a beautiful blue urn given to her by her nanny. A madman wants it, and Taka keeps her safe, while fighting his own orders to kill her. It is tense and gritty, and includes a hostage situation and a "chess game" of sorts using people's lives. This story is interesting, tense, tough, and full of suspense. It also has a good ending. Enjoy!

Stockholm Syndrome...at its worst!
Yuck, the main female lead character is so submissive you end up disliking her so much, and wanting to refer her to therapy to work out her ISSUES. She has a doctrite but is unable to figure things out. Summer, the main character falls for the guy who spends the first 5 hours of the book fantasizing about killing her in the quickest, least painful way. And ummm, he is merciful! I think I went into a fugue state because I never really felt the sincerity of the importance of the sacred object or the journey of the book. It just seemed like a book developed too quickly, and I like a bit more research in a story as well as a strong female characters. I was not endeared to any of the characters. The sex scenes seemed more like "she said no but means yes", due to the submissive nature of the Summer and the sexually confident Tako. There was so much more that could have been said, and having more dialogue might have helped (alot of thinking to themselves). This is a quick read that I will be quickly forgot and should have been bought at a used book store but not for the value of an audible.
I like the narrator. I will skip the other books in the series.
